Lady Gaga is at the center of a fashion controversy for wearing a bright pink fur!
The songstress posted the above photo on her website prompting PETA to send her a letter. The animal rights group wrote the following to Gaga:
“Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: ‘I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur.’ I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat?
Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. By wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian.
As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.”
Gaga responded with the following:
“For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You!”
Yikes! Ironically, Gaga posed last year for a PETA ad alongside Pink and Mariah Carey with the headline “Fur-Free & Fabulous.” Guess Lady G is singing a different tune these days.
Just last week, the “Born This Way” singer wore a pink fur while leaving a Giorgio Armani store in New York. See the photos in our gallery below.
